Endometriosis is now
considered a systemic
disease rather than
local condition in pelvis
By Professors Tzeng Chii-Ruey, Luk Rombauts, Tasuku Harada and Yutaka Osuga
Our Special Interest Group was established to share experience and expertise, and to build deeper understanding of endometriosis among ASPIRE members.
Endometriosis has been drawing increasing attention in relation to infertility, and also to obstetrical complications, ovarian cancer, cardiovascular diseases and mental problems as its sequelae.
In line with the accumulating evidence, endometriosis is now considered a systemic disease rather than a local condition in the pelvis. Consequently, endometriosis associated infertility should be examined and interpreted in this new paradigm.

In the Endometriosis SIG 2022 pre-Congress course on 28 April, six lectures on endometriosis and infertility will delivered. The course will feature multiple topics to bring delegates up to date on endometriosis and infertility, including IVF, medical and surgical treatment.
Each presenter is a leader in the clinical application or research on endometriosis and infertility. The lectures will be highly scientific, but practical and comprehensible for general O&G doctors, reproductive endocrinologists and researchers.
We hope you participate in this course to acquire cutting edge knowledge and to exchange perspectives in this expanding field.
